Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg says claims that he’s just out to make money from ads drive him ‘crazy’
Mark Zuckerberg has said it drives him ‘crazy’ when people claim that he is just out to make money with Facebook’s new advertising blitz.
The founder of the social network, who made $2.3bn last year from the company, said he just wants to connect people and not line his pockets.
Mr Zuckerberg added that he gets angry when he reads news articles that say his ‘goal is to make a lot of money’.
His claims will ring hollow to many users, not least as, according to an article in the Wall Street Journal, he personally approved adverts in the news feed.
Facebook users now have to endure news feeds which are cluttered with posts by companies like McDonald’s even if they have not ‘liked’ them.
